This is my first post on MLP (Hope it’s is in the right place).I just picked this up today. I got it brand new for less than I’ve seen used R8s go for so I couldn’t pass it up. The neck is much different / thicker / rounder than my 09 Studio. Which to me, is a great thing and a reason for owning multiple guitars. I’ve wanted an R8 for many years. I always thought I wanted a more plain top but this one had just enough flame without being too much (for me anyway) Hopefully my wife doesn’t kill me and I can add more pictures later.

It’s mostly the angle. I honestly don’t notice them when using / playing. I will say the knobs sit higher with them for sure.

Congrats. There's an unwritten rule around here that any NGD must have a minimum of three pictures from different angles, so you need to post a few more.

(I just made that up)

Once you own a CS Historic, nothing else will ever be good enough, unless you have an extra quarter of a million dollars laying around.
